Wouldn't you love this story to be about you

Comcast Cable Guy Weight Breaks Pole
http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/chi-tue-problem-box-27jan27,0,3124066.story

I found this story absolutely hilarious. It's sad because if Comcast had just done the right thing by fixing the pole in the first place, this guy wouldn't have to be so embarrassed. I don't know if you have ever worked with Comcast but their service is typically very bad.

Often when I make service calls I do their whole automated system and at some point in the process it hangs up on me. Got to love that.

One time I had a guy suggest I use their online chat to set-up my modem and router. That would be pretty challenging since I need to the modem and router hooked up to have an Internet connection.

Oh well, this incident happened not far from our house (next town over). It's good for a laugh :).

Much less depressing that reading about our crazy governor. I seriously believe the man is mentally gone.

I don't have to do my taxes

This is because Mark does them.... :)

I always did my own taxes (prior to getting married) and it was one of my least favorite chores of the year. Some years I was motivated and did them them really early. Other years...I waited until late.

Mark (as an accounting student) I believe truly enjoys doing the taxes. Now with the house and such it is more complicated than in years past. He's excited about this. Strange I know.

I'm thankful that until death do us part...I won't have to do my taxes. Plus I have the best accountant ever!

Lots going on

Sorry it has been so long. We've had a very busy (and very blessed) holiday season. We've spent lots of time with family and friends. Mark has been battling a head cold since just before the New year but he's making it.

Today my Amanda is having her tonsils taken out. She really needs this done as they were basically so large they were touching in the back of her throat. Hopefully all goes well.

I'll post more about our holiday w/pictures soon.
